Bash Version: 4.1
Patch Level: 10
Release Status: release

        Adding colors on last line of PS1 cause caractere shift on history 

        With mintty terminal:
        PS1='\h Hello everybody\n\e[1;35m\]Hi\e[0m\]>'
        << cursor up >>
        << cursor down >>
        the line look like:
        Hi>PS1='\h Hello

        With putty terminal (with default configuration):
        with the same PS1, when the cursor is on the last line of the terminal
        when I call back a long command (displayed on 2 or more lines) from 
        this line is badly displayed.
